Waiting, waiting, waiting, …. to hear from the Bone Marrow Specialist and find out what the plan is for the stem cell collection and transplant. In some ways I am impatient to get making the arrangements necessary for this transplant to happen, because it may mean the cancer will go into recession and I can get back to a normal life sooner, but at the same time I am not looking forward to it. Been reading the binder they sent me full of information on the BMT process and the idea of having a catheter (Hickman Line Catheter) installed into my heart does not sound like a fun time to me and apparently it has to stay in for a while afterwards. Gives me the creeps and my mind is just repelled by the concept.
Meanwhile, I think I over did it with the house move on the weekend, as I was really sick again after the chemo treatment on Monday last week. Nauseous, diarrhea, vomiting, tingling and swelling in my feet, aching in the calves of both legs, headache. Didn’t feel like getting out of bed for 3 days and then took it real easy on day 4, just trying to eat something good so I could regain some energy. Feel Ok today but go back for my last treatment of this round tomorrow.
Am enjoying our new place, even though I haven’t been able to unpack everything due to being sick but just the same it feels better, a calmer place to be in. Cleaning and unpacking will happen given time, I’m sure. Can’t thank the folks that helped with moving day enough, sure was great to have some help!
